girlfriends are back with their second single ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ and we’re shook. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, this duo is a force to be reckoned with. Within the space of two tracks, they’re fast becoming an alt band of 2020 you’d be stupid not to have your eyes on!
This latest track ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is another perfect pop-punk track for us to sink our teeth into. It’s written by both Travis Mills and Nick Gross in John Feldman’s studio where he produced the track.
It’s no secret that any track Feldman gets his hands on, is going to be a masterpiece and this song is no different. ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is a cathartic breakup anthem that will have you up in your feels.
It came from a genuine place. I’d be stressed out, or bawling my eyes out, and the songs would come very organically…This project is different from anything else I’ve ever done.
Travis Miss, girlfriends
Both Mills and Gross only have two tracks together but it’s clear that they’re not lacking in inspiration. After losing his close friend Lil Peep and a long time relationship in quick succession, Mills began writing to channel his feelings.
It’s the feelings of grief, uncertainty alongside a renewed vigor for life that cements girlfriends into the pop-punk scene.
